Transport strike causes traffic chaos in Athens

Transport workers in Athens have taken part in the first of three 24-hour strikes to object to legislation that would allow the transport organisation to make commercial use of stations.

Workers’ unions say the proposed changes would strip the metro organisation of funds and undermine its public character.
